Consultation Groups for Clinicians – CEUs available

Training Group for Clinicians Interested in Group Dynamics   Contact:  Britt Raphling, LCPC, CGP

Tuesdays 12 – 1:30 p.m.

This consultation group for therapists uses the power of interpersonal process to explore cases and other professional concerns to help us develop our identities as clinicians.  Group members share their here-and-now associations to the issues being discussed, offering all members of the group an opportunity to learn about managing and responding to the complex inter- and intra-personal dynamics that are constantly being stimulated in our work. If you are interested in group and interpersonal dynamics, and/or in starting your own group, you will gain much from working with the wonderful community of clinicians who are current members, and in adding your own perspective to our collective learning experience.  Both newer and more seasoned therapists are welcome to join.  A group practice is not required for membership.


Integrative Psychotherapy Consultation Group   Contact:  Niquie Dworkin, PhD

Saturdays (monthly) time TBD

This group is open to new therapists who have just finished a graduate program as well as therapists who wish to integrate new orientations and interventions into their repertoire.  We will focus on combining symptom-focused and insight-oriented interventions from the psychodynamic, cognitive/behavioral, and experiential traditions, and will discuss cases from an integrative relational perspective.
